Boston College has a number of EDI resources for employees, both within and outside of the Libraries.
Boston College Affinity Groups are volunteer, employee-managed groups that promote the interests of their respective constituencies. Affinity Groups bring together individuals with common interests to facilitate efforts that promote education and awareness while helping to advance and sustain a campus culture and climate that welcomes diversity and inclusiveness. All members of the BC community are welcomed!
The Jewish Faculty, Staff, Administrators, and Allies affinity group at Boston College provides opportunities for all members of the BC campus community to learn about Judaism, celebrate Jewish holidays and cultural traditions, engage in open dialogue, and discuss current events. The group aims to create a supportive environment to build community while developing social, educational, and programmatic partnerships to raise awareness about the Jewish experience on campus.
Affinity Groups are places where underrepresented groups can come together for rest, reflection, sharing, healing, and organizing during work time. Affinity groups are organized by group members! They can be adapted to fit group members' needs.
These groups are specifically for those who identify as BIPOC, as LGBTQIA, or as having a disability. If you do not identify in one of these groups but are interested in learning, check the EDI Events calendar for education-centered opportunities or other events that are open to allies.
